Manchester United vs Chelsea Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

With both defences leaking goals, Al Hain-Cole expects a high-scoring clash when the Red Devils welcome Sarri's men to Old Trafford on Sunday.

Manchester United face a must-win clash in their hunt for a place in the Premier League’s top four when they welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red Devils are three points adrift of their fourth-placed guests with just three matches left to play, with their inferior goal difference posing an extra obstacle to Champions League qualification.

Latest odds

Having won their last two home games against this opposition, they are priced at 17/10 (2.70) with bet365 to make it three in a row for the first time since 1957.

Maurizio Sarri’s men have lost five of their previous seven league fixtures on the road, and are also available at those same 17/10 (2.70) odds to take a massive step towards Champions League qualification by coming out on top here.

The sides shared a 2-2 draw in October’s reverse encounter at Stamford Bridge, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on this one also finishing up all square.

Team news
Ander Herrera, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly could be in line for a return, although Antonio Valencia remains unavailable due to injury.

N’Golo Kante should be fit to play after coming off with a rib injury against Burnley last time out, while Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso could also be in contention.

Fragile defences
While they held out until the second half, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were never really likely to keep City at bay in Wednesday’s derby clash given their recent defensive performances.

Indeed, they have gone 12 fixtures since their last clean sheet in February’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool, and let in 18 goals in just the last nine matches.

The Blues’ record at the back is similarly unimpressive in away matches, having kept only one clean sheet in 12 on the road and conceded 18 times in just the last seven.

Predictions
With neither backline looking capable of holding strong, odds of 4/5 (1.80) are surely worth backing on over 2.5 goals being scored for a third league encounter in a row between United and Chelsea.
